Jail found to be non-compliant after inspection

Posted: Updated:
NUECES COUNTY -

A recent inspection of the Nueces County Jail could end up costing the county hundreds of thousands of dollars. 

Following the jail's latest inspection, it was found to be in non-compliance by the state commission on jails and standards. 

Inspectors found that some inmates were staying in holding cells for more than 48 hours. 

According to Nueces County Sheriff Jim Kaelin, there was no where else to put the inmates. 

After the inspection, Sheriff Kaelin requested that federal inmates be moved out of the jail to open up 24 beds for general population inmates. 

The problem with that solution is that the county receives funding for each federal inmate. 

If 24 inmates are moved somewhere else, the county could lose up to $450,000 a year. 

County Judge Lloyd Neal is working with the US Marshals to come up with a way to make more room for federal inmates.
